Does anyone else have this problem

I have a side that doesn't feel right to nurse on. It is hard to explain. It isn't painful, but I get this uncomfortable feeling every time. As soon as he starts nursing, I get these alarms in my brain that something isn't right and I just want to pull my nipple out of his mouth. I have to fight the urge to pull it out the entire time he is nursing. I force myself to nurse from that side anyway even though it is miserable. It just feels "wrong" even though his latch and everything is fine. I don't experience this at all on the other side.

On my right breast yes. It's just more comfortable feeling nursing on the left side for some reason.

It is my right side, too. It isn't even about position or anything. It is almost like I can feel the milk drawing from my breast and it is "rough".  I can't explain it...lol. I probably sound weird.

I don't prefer my right side and neither does my DS.

In the beginning I had a hard time getting him to latch right. And even now I have to do certain positions. I can't ever get him to nurse in that side while I'm laying down or while laying on my side.

Google D-MER.

Yep! This totally sounds like D-MER.

Omg, that is it. I have never heard of such a thing.  It is like I can feel the milk coming out and I start getting this uncomfortable sick feeling and I just want it to stop. It is almost overwhelming.  It is so hard to explain the feelings that come along with it though.

Okay, the best way I can explain the feelings I am getting is when you witness a horrible accident or something and you get this sick feeling in the pit of your stomach and all these negative emotions fill you up and you just want it to stop.  I get that almost as soon as he starts nursing on that side.  It isn't nausea, but emotion making you feel sick and like something is horribly wrong.

That is the weirdest thing I have ever heard. It sounds crazy even though they are saying it is a physiological response and not a psychiatric response.  It really is an awful feeling.
